No LTE Not Only About Battery
It's about a few things. Not on Verizon cause of their insistent of reviewing app updates (do they do this with Apple?) and no AT&T LTE is because LTE radio is a little pricey and their frequencies are not like the rest of world. So they make one SKU and keep the cost down. No prob with the HSPA version. Speeds are good for me.
They also don't want to build 3 different phones and have to support all of them. They want a standardized device free of carrier meddling. I really don't blame them. Many people are sick of carriers getting their hands into the device business.

said by bnceo:Likewise. I'm a tmo subscriber, so LTE availability really isn't an issue anyways at the moment. 90% of my time is spent at two places, my house and my job, both of which have faster real world connections then what LTE provides. And the 10% of the time that I'm not at one of those two places, HSPA(+) is sufficient for me.
